Educational Field Tour at Hay Meadow Creek

The Central Wisconsin Farmers Collaborative Producer-Led Watershed Protection Group hosted an educational field tour of the Hay Meadow Creek watershed in Portage County on August 19.  Wisconsin Wetlands Association Executive Director Tracy Hames talked about how water moves through agricultural landscapes and how farmers and landowners are protecting and maintaining the health of their waters and watersheds. Hames also explained how to apply simple on-farm water management practices to slow the flow of runoff, improve water quality, reduce erosion, and promote the overall health of the watershed.
